Match preview

Can San Jose Earthquakes start to climb up the Western Conference?

So far, Matías Almeyda's side have just one point to their name, coming in a thrilling come from behind 3-3 draw against Columbus Crew.

In that one, a fortnight ago, the Quakes were two goals down and a man down with just five minutes to play.

Cristian Espinoza then halved the deficit before his header in the sixth minute of additional time snatched a last-gasp draw.

Aside from that though, there hasn't been much for San Jose fans to shout about, watching their side lose 3-1 to New York Red Bulls and 2-0 against Philadelphia Union.

In last weekend's reverse in Pennsylvania, the Quakes mustered just one shot on target.

This leaves San Jose second bottom of the west and sixth bottom of the Overall Standings.

Will the Californians claim three points here?

Minnesota United meanwhile have qualified for the play-offs in each of the last three seasons and currently sit just above the all-important play-off line.

The Loons enjoyed an impressive 1-0 victory at Red Bull Arena last weekend thanks to Luis Amarilla lovely strike just after the interval.

As a result, Adrian Heath's side are still unbeaten in 2022, drawing 1-1 with both the Union and Nashville to start the campaign.

So, the unbeaten side will fancy their chances against a club without a win at Allianz Field.
